Machine made rugs work. They're cheaper, effective, and do a great job with consistent results. They aren't one of a kind, and can be limited in their ability to create detailed and intricate design. Once production has begun on a machine made rug, the set colours can't be changed.
The amount of colour available can also be limited too.
These rugs are usually made from one of the following materials:
What they are is an error free, consistent rug with little to no flaws. If you like the look of the design of a particular rug, the texture is right, and the materials it's created with have the benefits you're looking for - we'd definitely recommend this type of rug to you. If your floor piece should be a one of a kind unique piece with a story, then have a look at a hand tufted or handmade rug!
Handmade rugs will normally have a longer lifespan and reflect a different quality to that of machine made rugs. However, a well maintained woolen machine made rug can last decades!
Machine made rugs often go well in modern settings - due to their perfect uniformity and often more simple colours being used- which matches the sleek and simple look of their surrounding decor.
